Robinson Named Fred Hutch VP of Industry Relations


NICOLE ROBINSON will lead the Industry Relations and Technology Transfer office at Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center. Robinson will begin her role as vice president of industry relations and business development on July 27.

Robinson comes from Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Medical Center where she served as assistant vice president of the Center for Technology Commercialization, leading the technology transfer and commercialization development team. During her nine years at Cincinnati Children’s, Robinson increased the medical center’s invention disclosures tenfold while doubling the active commercial licenses executed, resulting in over $60 million in licensing revenue. Prior to that, she managed IP assets for the Office of Technology and Intellectual Property at the University of Chicago.

The Industry Relations and Technology Transfer Office is responsible for managing and commercializing the intellectual property assets of Fred Hutch. The activities of the office span the technology transfer process—including invention disclosure, market evaluation, intellectual property protection, licensing and contract management, and collaborations with industry and venture partners.
